Cain's Long Ties to the Koch Brothers

Herman Cain "has cast himself as the outsider, the pizza magnate with real-world experience who will bring fresh ideas to the nation's capital. But Cain's economic ideas, support and organization have close ties to" billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch "who bankroll right-leaning causes through their group Americans for Prosperity," the AP reports.

"His links to the Koch brothers could undercut his outsider, non-political image among tea party fans who detest politics as usual and candidates connected with the party machine."
